Welcome to Class 1
Year 1 is the first year of the National Curriculum, as such there is a more structured environment where children are encourages to further develop their independence ad to take ownership of their learning.
We aim to grow lively and enquiring minds believing children should always find learning worthwhile and challenging. To do this we scaffold, model and nurture children through their learning so that they can achieve at their own pace and to their best ability. Underpinning all of this is St Anne's Spirit which are the guiding principles of how all members of the St Anne's community should learn, play and be together in line with the schools values and ethos.
We look forward to sharing your child's learning journey with you and seeing them shine in their own individual ways!
